Happy Australia Day! Oi Oi Oi...


I was going to delve into the greeting card poet recesses of my mind today, but after sitting on Google I discovered I could not say it better than Manjit Boparai:



So many times the chant of "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi oi oi" has been used to stir up the fires of racial disharmony, so it is wonderful to see this unique take on the chant. Wish I could have found a You Tube version to link, but it appears all have been removed. And apologies on the quality but it is the best I can do.

On a lighter note however, what do you think of these? Still true or obsolete in our amazing mish-mash of multiculturalism of today's Australia?



He looks like an ex of mine in my stupid stage of development.


And:



I just want to know where they found the drawing of moi in my 1970/80's heyday! I even owned the faux fur topped uggies...

Please leave a comment if you can. I am feeling very alone in here nowadays and echoes just don't keep you company in blog reality.

The line "Enjoy barby freedom not afraid" really stuck with me. My husband came here as a Polish refugee over twenty years ago. He is so proud of his freedom. Loved all the greeting cards!
